Dr. Stefi Cohen Scheduled to Fight On October 22

Dr. Stefi Cohen is scheduled to fight on October 22. BoxRec claims the event will take place at the California Education and Performance Arts Center in Ontario, California, United States. Incidentally, BoxRec misspelled "Performance" as "Preformance." The center has been renamed the Lumcolor-Phoenix Center.

Cohen is 2-1-1 with one KO. She is coming off of a loss last July. Devany Cuevas Torres outboxed Stefi on route to a unanimous decision victory. Cohen, a 30 year old from Venezuela who had no amateur career, has been matched relatively tough during her pro career. Cuevas had a nice amateur career and was 1-0 in the pros before taking on Stefi. In her draw, Cohen faced Marcela Nieto, an experienced MMA fighter who was 2-0 as a pro boxer.

Cohen, a powerlifting superstar, entrepreneur, and PhD in physical therapy and exercise physiologist, has been going through a difficult period in her life over the past few months. On social media she has shared her experience with anxiety and revealed other personal issues, including the end of a long-term relationship and a falling out with a close friend.

Though Stefi doesn't sport a sparkling record, her boxing skills continue to improve. She's added more to her game with each fight. Against Cuevas, Cohen used upper-body movement and added a left hook to her repertoire. Slippery and crafty, Cuevas's style posed problems for Cohen, whose technique quickly loosened as she tried to figure it out.

The October 22 bout is scheduled for four rounds. No opponent has yet been announced.
